Savoring my last spring break - #SOL 4/4/17

A huge thanks to the gang at Two Writing Teachers for hosting and organizing each week. I appreciate the community of writers you encourage the entire month of March, and all the Tuesdays the rest of the year. Thank you so very much.

**For the March Slice of Life Challenge, I had planned to connect as many posts as possible to my #OLW for the year - SAVOR.** I did 24 straight days, but missed the last seven, so I'm doing my wrap-up today.

From March 25 - April 1, I didn't write for #SOLSC because I was on vacation. And not just any vacation, but, because of my pending retirement, my last spring break ever. When I realized that piece of information, I knew it was time to savor every moment of my time in Hilton Head last week:
Frequent stops at Publix. If you've never had a
freshly-made sub from here, it's amazing!
Chicken tenders are pretty great also.

The first view I saw when we
reached our condo at Hilton Head.

Daily walks on the beach.
My FitBit loved it!

Hundreds of sand dollars
on the beach this week.
Those daily walks yielded many shells
 (not common at HHI)
If you peer very closely, you will see
some of the dolphins I saw each day.
View from the pool in the afternoon.

Watching the tides come in and out.

Picking up clothing at one of
my favorite stores.
Shopping at this store each day.
But my favorite stop is the one where
I had them steam 1# of local shrimp
for me.

Last day on the beach. 
Leaving Hilton Head as the sun makes
its presence known.

There were so many moments to savor from last week - walks on the beach, toes in the ocean and sand, seafood all week, golf, great weather, a great deal of reading, and lots of rest and relaxation. I felt very blessed and savored it all!!
